Everything you need to know about the best of Hollywood.

This history of Hollywood is full of legends. Celluloid giants like Greta Garbo, Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Marlon Brando and Katharine Hepburn continue to spell magic for moviegoers across the globe. Directors like Welles, Chaplin, Hitchcock, Kubrick, Coppola, Spielberg, Scorsese and Tarantino have defined cinema as an art form. And films like Gone with the Wind, the Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, Ben-Hur, the Sound of Music, The Godfather, Star Wars and Titanic have set new standards in entertainment.

Hollywood: the 100 Greatest Films is a quick guide to the very best of Hollywood.. Derek O’Brien provides a list of movies that are his personal favourites, and absolute must-sees for anyone who enjoys cinema. The write-up for the hundred films includes complete case and credits, the storyline, the USP of each film, and a wealth of interesting asides, such as:

Rear Window was filmed entirely on one confined set-a realistic courtyard composed of thirty-two apartments.

Tm Cruise was initially considered to play John f Nash in A Beautiful Mind.

Rick’s classic last line in Casablanca, Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship was added after shooting was completed.

For the film buff who wants to brush up on movie facts as well as the general reader fascinated by the glamour, adventure and romance of Hollywood, this book will be a useful reference tool and a delightful read.
